Liebster Award

The lovely Kylie nominated me for a Liebster Award. I'm not going to lie, I have been nominated before, but I totally dropped the ball and didn't do any of the follow-up. (Bad blogger, right here.) I've decided this time I'm going to make the effort though. Especially since before the nomination I didn't even know Kylie or her blog and now she's my newest follower! (And I'm almost to 10!)

So, what is this Liebster thing? I wasn't sure either, so I headed over to see what Kylie had said about it. Basically, it's for bloggers with fewer than 200 followers to encourage them (us) to keep on blogging. I'm very excited to be chosen, and it is very encouraging so thanks Kylie!

Here's how this whole thing works:
1. I will list 11 things about myself
2. I will answer 11 questions Kylie asked me
3. I will nominate 11 others and ask them 11 questions (This is going to be tough!)
11 Things About Me
1. I have lived in Nova Scotia my entire life, and have no desire to live anywhere else.
2. I've really only ever worked for one company, Sobeys. (I was a substitute teacher briefly)
3. If I wasn't married I would be a crazy cat lady.
4. If I wasn't married I would live on microwave dinners.
5. I was a nail biter for years and years but finally managed to quit.
6. Now I'm obsessed with nail polish.
7. I am the oldest of two kids and even though my brother is 26 I worry about him constantly.
8. My husband is 5 years younger than me.
9. I love baking, but complicated recipes scare me.
10. I've been an avid reader for as long as I can remember.
11. I won't drive any car but my own. I won't even drive my husband's truck.
Kylie's Questions
1. What is one TV show you never miss?  NCIS
2. What would you buy if given one thousand dollars? I'd re-do our master bedroom. Not furniture, but bedding, paint, curtains, accessories...
3. What is your favorite beauty tip? I wish I had beauty tips!
4. If you could be the best at something what would you choose? Baking? I'm not sure really.
5. What is one superstition you have? I'm not superstitious at all.
6. What is the most awkward date you've been on? I went to a hockey game with the son of a co-worker once. I can't even put my finger on what made it awkward, it just was.
7. What is your favorite pair of shoes? My black boots, they make me feel a little fashionable.
8. What is your favorite smell? My husband after his shower. (Dove soap for Men...)
9. What is the last movie you watched? I can't even remember what it's called. It had Reese Witherspoon and Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd...
10. What is your favorite clothing store? Reitman's. Pretty much the only place I shop.
11. Describe yourself in 5 words. Short, friendly, cheerful, optimistic, impatient.
My Questions
1. How did you come up with the name of your blog?
2. What are you blogging goals?
3. If you could travel back in time to witness any historical event, what would it be?
4. If you could travel back in time to have dinner with any historical figure, who would it be?
